First there were sundials. Then came water clocks, hourglasses and mechanical clocks. Now we have digital clocks and watches that split time into hundredths of a second. Our culture certainly is concerned with time. Maybe you feel like your life is rushing away too fast. Moses spent forty years in Egypt, forty years in the desert, forty years in God's service in the wilderness. How often he may have thought of wasted time. But hear his perspective: "Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.... For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night" Psalm 90: 1-4
It's good to contemplate God's eternity in the light of man's frailty. We are creatures of time, but God is eternal. He is our dwelling place from generation to generation. The eternity we face is in His hands.
"He who does the will of God abides forever" 1 John 2:17
God bless all, and remember that you are loved!!!
